Suspension Service & Repair for 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

Does Your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Custom Cruiser feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Custom Cruiser’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Custom Cruiser's steering and suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Oldsmobile intended.
  • When should I have my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Custom Cruiser’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Oldsmobile's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
